Hawkesbury nursery trees to help restore fire-affected bushland

The Hawkesbury will play a part in bringing the state’s wilderness back to life after the devastating 2019-20 bushfires.

Hawkesbury Community Nursery at Mulgrave has been chosen as one of three recipients of a Bushfire Recovery Nursery grant, made available by the Foundation for National Parks & Wildlife [FNPW], the charity partner of Australia’s National Parks.

The grant will go to expanding the Mulgrave nursery’s capacity to 45,000 trees, which will serve as a major step in supporting the recovery of Wollemi National Park and the Blue Mountains World Heritage Area.

It is estimated that 80 per cent of the area was destroyed by the fires.

FNPW, in partnership with global non-profit group, One Tree Planted, and French beauty brand, L’OCCITANE, share a mission of planting one million trees over the next five years.
